JP Dutta is back with a bang and this time its Paltan that is being directed by him. JP Dutta, who has directed war films like Border, LOC Kargil and Refugee, is back with yet another war film Paltan, which will supposedly bring forth another chapter from the pages of Indian history.
The first look of the film showed shadows of army men. It also had a tagline below the name of the film which read, ‘Brother to my right. Brother to my left. Together we stand. Together we fight.’
The first look pictures of the film have been divulged, which feature Jackie Shroff, Arjun Rampal, Gurmeet Choudhary, Harshvardhan Rane, Luv Sinha and Siddhanth Kapoor in individual frames. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh familiarized us to the cast on Twitter and wrote: "Presenting the principal characters of Paltan. Directed by J P Dutta, releases September 7 2018." What appears from the first look, Paltan is much like J P Dutta's previous films (Border and LOC Kargil), which is set against the backdrop of a battleground.
J P Dutta is returning on the director's chair after a gap of 12 years. The filmmaker had last directed Umrao Jaan, which released in 2006. Paltan also stars Sonal Chauhan and Deepika Kakkar.
